MSc Cultural Heritage Studies

Instituttet har designet en flerfaglig mastergrad, MSc Cultural Heritage Studies, i samarbeid med Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU). Studenter fra hele verden har deltatt på studiet som har vært gjennomført ved GCU. Graden søkes nå overført til et studiested i Norge.

En stipendordning for studenter er bevilget, etter søknad fra instituttet, fra Telemark og Vestfold fylkeskommune. Stipend er delt ut til mastergradsstudenter fra Norge til studiet i Skottland. Mastergraden er satt sammen av fagområdene miljøvern, arkeologi, kulturarv, turisme, ledelse, bærekraftig utvikling, samspillet mellom FoU, offentlige og private aktører. Den er etablert med betydelige midler fra EU og er ifølge GCU unik i Europa. Et eget flerfaglig team/Heritage Futures Team har vært ansvarlige for den faglige plattformen og har vært knyttet opp som lærekrefter for studiet.

MSc Cultural Heritage Studies er en tverrfaglig mastergrad som har vært med på å fremme internasjonalt utdanningssamarbeid mellom Norge og Skottland. Tilbakemeldinger fra de norske studentene som er uteksaminert fra studiet er positive. De har alle fått relevante jobber i Norge i etterkant av studiet. Instituttet er ikke kjent med at det finnes en tilsvarende mastergrad i Norge.
